In January 2017 the Malden Rushett Residents Association committee opted to establish a separate Neighbourhood Planning group for Malden Rushett.
This would ensure that residents had full access to the new planning rules when RBK wrote its new Local Plan.
Malden Rushett Community (MRC) is that group.
MRC will be using Locality’s Neighbourhood Planning Roadmap and advised processes.
We will begin with an open consultation so that every voice in the community is heard.
We will then use proven models of community engagement to establish a set of community objectives.
A Neighbourhood Area is the geographical boundary within which a Neighbourhood Plan, including all its policies, will apply.
RBK has designated a Neighbourhood Area for Malden Rushett.
This will enable the community to determine how developers should interpret the new RBK Local Plan in Malden Rushett.
All future development within the red boundary will be subject to planning policies written by the community.
During 2023 MRC will hold a series of focus groups for members to discuss issues of concern
A series of roundtable meetings will be held for members to explore options and identify solutions
Preferred solutions will be presented to members for deliberation and selection
